beauty bits i will be wearing this autumn

Now we are in October I have been pulling out some of my favourite vampy shades to wear all this month to the lead up to Halloween. Although there was a time when I never wore this type of make up look throughout the month but now I love to add hints of festive to my beauty routine. Today I thought I would share with you which bits I will be wearing throughout October.
On my eyes, I have been smudging some purple eyeshadow under my lower lashes for a soft, smoky effect. W7's 'In The Nude' eye shadows are my favourite to use this time of year especially because of the purple/brown shades. They are everyday colours and for evening looks I will go bold and reach for the deep shades. These looks work well with berry lips and long lashes.

Cheeks, I like to go for light pink for the rosy cheek effect. I am loving Nyx High Definition Blusher in 'Nudeitude' . This blush is pigmented but not to the point where I'm having to tap off any excess from the brush, which I like. I find that because I have pale skin, it gives me a natural looking colour. You could go ahead and use this all over your face if you wanted to for a flush colour.

On my nails, I am always browsing through Pinterest for creating a Halloween nail art design or sticking to a dark nail polish. I always grab my three favourites from Essie and they are - Licorice, just your regular black polish and The Lace Is On, a dreamy shimmery plum colour and Smokin' Hot, a light grey.

For lips, I have the gorgeous Nyx Matte Lip Creams in the colours - Morocco, Madrid, Prague, Rome and Transylvania. I cannot wait to start wearing these colours and my collection is getting bigger. My staple lipstick for me in October is MAC Diva, a nice berry that lasts for hours on the lips. Something for Halloween is MAC Cyber, a very deep shade perfect for any Halloween look.
